The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the Philippine government agency charged with ensuring the quality and safety of the following products:
- Processed food and drinks
- Drugs and other pharmaceutical products
- Dietary/herbal supplements
- Medical devices
- Toys and child care articles
- Household pesticides/cleaning agents
- Veterinary products
- Animal Feeds
In line with its mandate under the Department of Health (DOH), the FDA regulates the production, importation, and distribution of these products in the country.
A company that wishes to engage in such business activities must first obtain a License To Operate (LTO) from the FDA either as an importer or a manufacturer. Once done, the company must then apply for a Certificate of Product Registration (CPR) to ensure that its products comply with FDA technical standards.
